In this edition of INSTANT VINTAGE RADIO, enjoy Splendor Sound Vol. 1 + 2
SPLENDOR SOUND 1 •
This is a mix of all the songs, ideas, art, feelings & memories that evoke the feeling of SPLENDOR in my heart: It’s familiar to us all, but rare & wonderful. SPLENDOR is a simple message that resonates sublimely; it’s the feeling that I first felt when I had heard Reflection Eternal’s “The Blast” for the very first time; SPLENDOR is every line & stanza by the Gift Of Gab from Blackalicious’ “Make You Feel That Way”, and then some. It’s this ecstatic, overwhelmingly LOVED sensation, and it belongs to you.
This mix is also inspired by the wonderful, illustrious work of Terby Wonder from Vancouver, Canada; in particular, his ‘Drawww’ piece (pictured to the left) was the chief inspiration for me to create this mix! See more of his sensational work here!: www.bluecanvas.com/terbywonder
SPLENDOR SOUND 2 • “Love is incredible. And words that I write fall short, almost illegible.”
I wanted SPLENDOR SOUND 2 to be very, very special. I wanted this mix to reflect all of the feelings, words, tastes, thoughts, whiskey dreams, and love I’ve felt since the original SPLENDOR SOUND made its debut in May 2013. From 2013 to 2015, I’ve restlessly “searched for the perfect beat” as Gilles Peterson would say, saving the most brilliant, dazzling, & delightful instrumentals for this mix you’re about to listen to now. I wanted you to have this mix, to listen to it and walk away having discovered something new you haven’t heard before, to relish an older song you haven’t heard in a while, to be inspired and feel captivated the same way these certain tracks, words, and lyrics inspired + captivated me; I wanted to give you a piece of me, through this experience, these beats, those songs, and I wanted to send you FLYING.
This is SPLENDOR SOUND 2 | A Special Additions + Mix.
